We’re committed to promotion of industrialisation–FG

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has restated the commitment of the Federal Government to the diversification of the economy through promotion of industrialisation.

According to him, the move will provide millions of jobs for Nigerians.

Speaking with a Chinese delegation led by Prof. Justin Yifu Lin in his office on Tuesday, Osinbajo said the need for industrialisation has become imperative.

“Our people deserve better life and this administration is equally committed to achieving this,“ he said.

Speaking with the State House Correspondents shortly after the meeting, Prof. Justin Yifu Lin disclosed that his meeting with the vice president and the Economic Management Team was on “how Nigeria can diversify its economy, especially to other sectors that can create jobs and promote exports in order to fulfill the expectation of the people for prosperity.”
